50 mono portraits at 50mm : No. 23 : Candy Floss Girls

Another portrait from our midweek visit to Skegness

These two ladies run a sweet kiosk, selling candy floss, tins of pop and various other confectionery

I asked if I could photograph them individually, but they preferred to be together.

I think they may have been mother and daughter as they have similar mouth's and noses

They liked the photo's when I showed them on the back of my 450D

These two ladies are the last of my "Skeggy Portraits". Only another 27 to go !!!

Great b&w

They gave you some lovely smiles. I'm guessing candy floss is what we call "cotton candy" in the U.S.
